Welcome to the Slow Sunday Stitching party where we celebrate all types of hand stitching including cross stitch, embroidery, hand piecing, knitting, crochet, rug making, english paper piecing, applique, hand quilting, etc. If you are creating something with your hands using needles and threads/yarns, we want to see what you're making!
I have finally finished a knitted cloth that says "Let's go campin". This photo shows the true colour of the yarn... I knit it in green for summer use in the great outdoors. I will be sending the cloth (with a thank you note) to my sister-in-law who hosted a family camping weekend on her property at the beginning of the summer.
This photo is side lit to try to show the pattern better. Pattern is by KnitWits and I would rate this pattern as "challenging" - or maybe it was me?! But with almost every row being different, it required lots of concentration.
I immediately started another (easier) cloth and learned a new stitch called "knit 1 below". It looks lacy and pretty, and there are only 4 different rows to repeat. This is the first pattern in a Leisure Arts book given to me by my friend Gail and I hope to work my way through the book to learn many new stitches.
I am feeling much better this weekend and hope to enjoy more knitting and some embroidery today. Apparently yesterday was "World Embroidery Day" and I shall celebrate today by stitching outdoors. If you would like to watch a video of embroidery projects from around the world, do treat yourself to this World Embroidery Day video.
